If you want your Instagram to come to life for Halloween season, let me show you some tips to get noticed -
Take advantage of groupings, aka the more the merrier.
Amp up the amount of something in a photo to give it impact. An army of dolls, a room full of candles, pumpkins in a row, mannequin parts in a pile....
Take advantage of lighting and shadows -

In the scenario above, I took battery-operated candlesticks and hung them from fishing wire and a pushpin in the ceiling. I put it in front of a mirror in a hallway with a doll display beneath that also had battery-operated candles among the faces. What a creepy wall down the hall!
If you have an IR (infrared) night vision camera - enjoy the effects!
Use Photoshop to take your costume or mask to a new location -
Go to the Halloween places and share -
Try some makeup and costume pics as well as posed scenarios -

Tips: Remember # (hash tags) as the more the merrier to people to find you on Instagram and realize how totally fun you are.
